What Does the Bookworm Say?: Re-reading Books

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Re-reading Books

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is re-reading books – do you re-read your favorites? If so, why and what are they? Do they change every time you read them? Do I re-read books? Yes, I do, but not very often. Since I started blogging a few years ago, I haven’t had a lot of time to re-read books. There’s a lot of pressure in book blogging to read the newest thing… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Music

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is music. Do you listen to it while reading or do you prefer silence? If you listen to music while reading, bonus points for sharing your current playlist. My answer is going to be short and boring. I don’t really listen to music when I read. I find music too distracting when I read. However, that does not mean that I read in silence. I am a big… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Social Media

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is social media. What are your thoughts on social media?  Do you need it/like it etc? As a blogger, I consider my blog a type of social media. I use it to connect with other people who have similar interests as me. However, I don’t want to just blog into the ether. I want to make sure that my blog reaches as many people as… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Trailers

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Trailers

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is book trailers. Love ’em, hate ’em or don’t care either way. I have mixed feeling about book trailers. I like the idea of them but, in reality, they don’t really do much for me. I find a lot of them to be pretty cheesy with bad special effects and bad acting. I tend to like the ones without actors… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Bookshelf Tour

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is a bookshelf tour. I am going to give you a little peek into my bookshelves. Below is the view of most of my book storage, housed in my living room. I moved about two years ago into a much smaller apartment and struggled with how to fit all of my books into my new place. I also agonized on… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Blogging Burnout

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Blogging Burnout

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about blogging burnout – do you ever feel it and, if so, how do you get yourself out of it? Burnout. This is something that probably every blogger has to deal with during their time as a blogger. Most of us don’t have the luxury of having unlimited time to blog and have to fit it in between work, family, friends, hobbies and, of course, reading. If you’ve… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Budgeting

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Budgeting

  Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about budgeting. Do you have a book budget and/or describe your book buying habits.  I think it’s pretty funny that I thought of this topic because, really, I am terrible at book budgeting or any kind of budgeting. Like most avid readers, I have a pretty bad book buying habit. It’s really hard to resist a pretty new book when I see it in the store or on… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Monogamy

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Monogamy

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is book monogamy.  Are you a monogamous reader? First, let me define what a monogamous reader is. I consider a monogamous reader someone who pretty much reads one book from start to finish before starting another book. I am definitely not a monogamous reader. I generally have anywhere from 2 – 4 books going at once. I usually pick books in different genres at the same time. Say, if… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: The Change-Up – The Wolves of Mercy Falls

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is a recurring topic about cover changes. We are talking specifically this week about the recent announcement that The Wolves of Mercy Falls (aka Shiver) series will be getting a cover makeover in anticipation of Sinner, a new companion novel to the series. So let’s take a look at the original covers. No I’ve been a fan of the original covers for a long time. Shiver is my favorite… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Negative Reviews

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Negative Reviews

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Elegantly Bound Books and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about negative reviews. Do you write them and why or why not? I feel like most bloggers fall into two camps – those who write negative or critical reviews and those post positive mostly reviews. Now this can be for many reasons. I have a friend who posts mostly positive reviews because she doesn’t finish books that she does like and therefore does not review them. I have… Read more »
